Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op
It's not hard to find an owner of Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op—odds are you can just walk in and point a finger. More than 12,000 people hold shares at the community-owned store, which has been open since 1973. The co-op's owners are unified by an interest in the central goals and standards: choosing local and natural foods high in quality, with a focus on seasonal and organic products.
To that end, the team at Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op works with more than 100 local farmers, growers, and food producers, and the fruits of these partnerships line the aisles. Depending on the season, the produce section might house asparagus from Riverdog Farm in Guinda or strawberries from Terra Firma Farm in Winters while other departments stock cage-free poultry, bulk grains, and craft beers.
